I had 2 horses once covered by rain rot (not MY horses). Owner obviously didn't do much about it at all. What I did was pulling those pieces out of coat one by one (took like 2 days per horse) and clear each spot with the alcohol right after. They were not sore so I could ride next day I was done with it and it didn't come back either. At least while I was taking care of them.

Well his aren't pink and don't have pus coming out, so I believe he's doing a good job of getting over it already, but the wash will help and anything I can do to help my boy I'll do :)

I am having the same problem with my old girl. I can't seem to get rid of the stuff....

Anyone know of a treatment that doesn't require water? It's freezing here and I am unable to wash her off but she is getting miserable. Stupid me left it untreated for way too long and now it is like... taking over her back :(

Oh, and my horse has a blanket on and cannot be left without one right now (she's really sensitive to cold and will stand and shiver). Does that affect it?

Yeah I too need a method without water as I don't have access to a warm water wash stall. We don't blanket out horses. But they can easily get out of the cold and rain if they wanted. I have the same problem too eventerdrew

reguardless of what it is, if my horse gets a cut, bad bug bites in his legs, "Scratches", rain rot, or a bad bite from another horse I use either Neospourin (the stuff I would use if I cut myself) or Scarlett oil. I SWEAR by the scarlett oil, it works on anything. It works like magic. It will sting fr a little bit at first but they'll be fine. And make sure you don't get it on ur clothes or hands it will stain. Good Luck!!!!!

As I posted before, tea tree oil. Put it on to soften scabs. Pick off scabs. Instead of shampoo, wipe off with damp clean rag. Reapply tea trea oil and let it sit until the next treatment.
